Description of the Problem
You enter graduate school with two full years of support from a fellowship awarded by your undergraduate institution. You easily find a faculty member to work with. At the end of the second year, the faculty member tells you that she will not be your thesis advisor.
- What should you do?
- Was the behavior of this faculty member ethical? Why or why not?
- How is the behavior of this professor different from the assistant professor in Scenario 6?
- Can you design a faculty scenario for this situation that would make her behavior ethical?
- What should the response of the department to this situation be?
